[ INDEX ] Equine Type: Horse Breed: Foundation American Shetland   [ PREV ] [ NEXT ]
The Foundation American Shetland is a subtype of the American Shetland. It has the same conformation that American Shetlands had during the 1950s. This means that the Foundation American Shetland is less refined, and more heavily built, than the Classic or Modern American Shetlands. More specifically, their necks and legs are shorter and thicker, and their bodies are smaller and more compact than the bodies of the other two subtypes.

Foundation American Shetlands come in all colors and patterns except for the following: dominant black, champagne, pearl, manchado, and leopard. They stand between 7hh and 10.2hh, and are therefore shorter on average than the Classic and Modern American Shetlands.

(For more info, see the 'American Shetland.')
